Childhood dreams

After the fantastic British childhood dreams, now come the no less fantastic French childhood dreams. Great work, Egbert. :love: :love: :love:

My best regards. :thumbup:

This was the very first set of figures I ever bought, which was over 50 years ago now. I think I paid .$.33, maybe $.35 w/tax. Being a child I thought US marines would make a good opponent for the french. Lots of memories with this set.

You've done a very nice job of sprucing these big headed fellows up Egbert. I do like the variety of poses even though many are unrealistic. It adds a naive charm. Anyhow, well done sir!

Then you must read this topic if you didn't do this yet. ;-)

The Nappies were not my first figures, rather my last for quite a while, but I do remember them very fondly whatever we can say about the poses. (the Grenadiers and the Prussians would have to wait for some time before I had grown up and could buy them :-D ). Very nice to see the redone like this!
